VW Cabriolet 1302 LS model 1971, original photo from1970.
If we don´t consider the watercooled Golf Cabriolet And the VW Eos there have been three Cabriolet:s officially sold by Volkswagen:
All these are based on VW type 1 (The Beetle). These pages is only about the VW Karmann Cabriolet, nothing else. This model was produced 1949-79 by Wilhelm Karmann GmbH in Osnabrück, Germany. 331 847 cars was made. This model has never been produced anywhere else, which is a common misunderstanding There are bodyshops that convert or have converted Beetles to cabrios, sometimes with good result, but mostly they look just horrible! There is no substitute for the real thing: a nice Karmann Cabriolet gives you real value for money and is great fun to drive!
